Hue-FO (aka Philips Hue Suspension Light Cher)

At the end of last year, I wrote a blog about our new kitchen here.  At the other end of our kitchen is an open plan dining area which was redecorated at the same time.  The finishing touch was to replace the dining room lamp, which I didn’t mind but my partner did.  We’ve really struggled to find something both of us like and after visiting too many shops, and ordering and returning 3-4 online lights I’d pretty much given up.  I then got an e-mail from her suggesting a futuristic looking Philips Hue model, which I’d not even considered considering how much she moans about the Hue GU10’s in the lounge that can only be turned on and off using Alexa!  I had to check she was’s joking, but apparently not, so another was ordered online pretty safe in the knowledge that Amazon would take it back without any problems if it didn’t fit in.

One Hundred (with Guttenberg)

Said In a darts commentary 20-20-60 stylee!

After my last, and longest blog, I’ll try and keep this one a little shorter.  It’s really just here to commemorate reaching 100 blogs.  Never when I started did I imagine I’d still be writing to myself!

Advent 2 – The Last Christmas!

Now I’ve been blogging for a whole year; you’ll probably start to notice some patterns in my behaviour.  This year is no different to the last (several) with another Lego Star Wars Advent Calendar!  I’ve just started a new contract up in Aberdeen which means I’ll be away from home Monday to Thursday, so the pictures might not get updated as frequently, and some of the models will be built by my daughter, once she’s done her Lego Friends one 😀
